MWC: Nokia 105 and Nokia 301, Two New Feature Phones
Starting at around £13!
At Nokia's press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Finnish company presented two phones made 'just for phoning': the Nokia 105 and Nokia 301.
There's no NFC or other fancy-shmancy features on the 105 and 301, these are just back-to-the-basics cell phones.
The Nokia 105 will cost €15 (around £13) and, unlike its predecessor the Nokia 1280, it has a colour screen. It picks up FM radio, comes with pre-installed games and has a flashlight function. The 105 will go on sale in the second quarter of 2013 in an extremely wide-scale release: Europe, China, India, Russia, Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.
The (slightly) more up-market Nokia 301 has a 3.2-Megapixel camera, is HSPA-compatible and supports certain apps, such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook. There's a dual-SIM version and a single-SIM version, both of which will go for €65 (around £56) and will be released in the same regions as the 105, excluding the United States.
